Looks awesome Andy - great work!

Are the posted rules set in stone? I'm asking because the battery rules for e-scale are limited to 4s but many racers use 5s packs as well.

Hey thanks.
Not sure yet to be honest. I originally had it as anything goes, but the big 3 in charge didnt want the track destroyed, so they wanted to go with 4s bc those are roar rules. We will see how things go though, we want the racers happy if they want 5 and 6s maybe it will change. If you think about it 5 and 6s is overkill. 3s is really plenty for those machines.

Yeah once I get mine converted over I'm just going to run a pair of 2s packs with a 1700-2200 kv motor which will still be way too much for inside.

I gotta start doing work on my carpet T4 soon!

Website is dailed! Everything looks good Andy. Are the classes "Open Speedo" or are there any restrictions on software and such? thanks

Thumbs up

Nice work on the new website. John L. told me it was up tonight. Cant wait to see it with the carpet down!! Any word on what Gary actually did with all that styrofoam??

Hope to see the doors open soon! it will be nice to have a track 10 min from home. Keep up the good work guys!

Oh and as I recall it, as far as the mellow yellow car, it was probably LowK07 chasing IT. Unless, of course he was getting lapped!!! LOL That car was 100% dialed for RC Alley.

Oh, I still have your 26T pinion. Thanks again Andy.

So far it is open speedo, just because lrp came out with the version two and the rs pro can have boost set into it. We would have to test each esc bc the tekins lrp novak all have boost. If we made it restricted, there would be a tech session before each race.
I ran 4 s tonight in a truggy and it was over kill just too much power for the course, i might even purchase a 3 s to run inside. 1700 would probably be good inside, and even backed off it would do well, possibly good enough to win in the right hamds.

Haha i have no idea what gary did with the foam... But he wanted it BAAAD lol he made even came out at the end with a whole other cart stacked with it haha that was hilarious. yeah tell me about it walls will be gettin destroyed with those monsters, they r just gonna kill the white walls. You might be right about the lapped thing with lowk... The old man had mellow yellow ripping at the old place. And thanks guys the website took forever to do... So much coding it was nuts. As far as the pinion goes, no worries dude ill eventually ge tit back, and if not im sure ill use something of someone elses so its all good.

Let me look about the track size i know someone else asked and i sent an email or something . As far as racing and practice go racing will be a certain amount and the cars after 5 less. Not sure about the cost it is still kind of a debate, heard two different figures i will let you know more when i hear it. Members will get perks for being members, not sure what they will have to pay to be members, but the word is that the rewards will be well worth it. Practice will be 5 i think not 100% sure yet the details need to be worked out some with the big 3. When i hear more ill keep you posted, i have been super busy with school stuff and the website, so i havent been around much to hear the conversations with the guys, but once i hear you guys will be the first to know. Thanks for the support guys, we need it. can't wait to get racing!!!!!

When you bring that Losi out make sure you blow the dust off it. Nevermind it will blow off when I go by you. Haha. Hope you start to come out again.

From what I can remember, I think the track size is going to end up being
34 x 65. I believe that is what we decided on when we were putting in the loops.
